Protecting victims from domestic violence
Spouses experiencing violence in marriage often file for divorce stating “domestic violence” as the cause. Unmarried partners may also experience domestic violence. As victims, abused spouses or partners desperately need to get away from the suffering and pain.
Legal support mechanisms in Phoenix for domestic violence victims include “formal separation” and “order of protection.” These legal mechanisms may be included in divorce or other legal proceedings to restrict an individual from gaining contact to abuse another.
The order of protection is exercised similar to a restraining order. For such legal protection to take effect, the victim of domestic violence needs to show that the person abusing them is:
- Either a spouse or former spouse
- Presently living or previously lived with the victim
- The parent of your child or children
To immediately protect a person, child and/or children from domestic violence, an emergency order of protection may be obtained. The emergency order of protection provides the necessary security from harm for a partner and their child or children who may be victims or at risk of victimization and domestic violence.
If you, your child or children are at risk of domestic violence, contact a Scottsdale divorce lawyer for best safety advice and protective action. Should you be unjustifiably accused of domestic violence, contact a Scottsdale divorce attorney at Cantor Law Group for representation to protect your rights.
